Since September 2014, I am the Degree Programme Director for Surveying and Mapping Science and Geographic Information Science.
I teach on a variety of module, ranging from surveying, BIM, photogrammetry and fieldcourses.
I also look after any equipment and software related to the former three subjects. Additionally, I am Lead the School's PEARL project - (Pioneering Education: Advanced Resource for Learning) - introducing mobile device based teaching and learning.
Degree of Doctor of Philosophy, Faculty of Science, Agriculture and Engineering, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
PhD title: ‘The Potential of High Spatial Resolution Remote Sensing for Mapping Upland Vegetation using Advanced Classification Methods’
June 2005 , University of Newcastle, UK
Diplom-Ingenieur (Equivalent to MSc) of Geodesy of the University of Technology of Dresden, June 2001Honours and Awards
2008 - Best Paper Award at FIG Workshop on e-learning in Enschede, Netherlands
2004 – Prize for Best Presentation at the Annual RSPSoc Student Meeting, Edinburgh, UK (1-2 April 2004).
2004 – Travel bursary of £350 from the Royal Photographic Society for attendance at the 2004 ISPSRS Congress, Istanbul, Turkey.
